Description
Former Deputy Whip of the Federal House of Representatives and Leader of the All Progressive Congress, APC in Edo state Hon Pally Iraise, on Tuesday accused Governor Godwin Obaseki of instigating the violence in Owan East local government area of the state.

Iraise, alleged that the Owan East local government council chairman, Hon Andrew Osigwe, on the instruction of the governor led thugs to destroyed podium, chairs and canopies at the public primary school meant for their ward rally.

He alleged that thugs also disrupted their preparation at campaign grounds in Otuo, Ihievbe, and Arokho and chased away APC supporters and called on security operatives to rise up and called to provide security for all. This also led to the death of five individuals.
But in a swift reaction to refute the claims,‎ the Deputy Governor, Philip Shaibu, through his Chief Press Secretary, Musa Ebomhiana said “The latest cry of the APC is akin to the cry of a drowning man holding on to the last straw.

“The APC has stored so much arms‎ in the system, they are now turning the arms against themselves.

“In Ikhin, Owan East, APC gave N500,000 to‎ the youths to go and share in Afuze after their campaign on the 14th of August, they disagreed and in the process, Ibira youths they bought killed two Afuze youths. The Afuze youths in retaliation, mobilized to Ibira camp in the area and killed three Ibira youths, bringing the total killings to five.”
